5th Graders Learn About Electromagnatism!

On Monday, April 9th, our 5th Grade students learned about Electromagnetism with the Museum of Science.  During this presentation featuring high-tech museum equipment, students explored voltage, current, resistance, and the interrelationship between magnetism and electricity. They got to see someone's hair stand on end, create a human extension cord by sending an electric current through several people, and shoot a metal ring to the ceiling of the school!  

Each year MESA spends about $15,000 to provide these in-school field trips to each grade!
